One day a wolf found a mouse and gobbled him up. When the mouse reached the wolf’s stomach, he discovered that he wasn’t alone, there was a duck asleep in bed.

The duck and mouse are shenanigans incarnate.

Utterly bonkers in the very best way. What would you do if you were a little mouse who had found himself swallowed by a wolf? Despair of course! But fear not, for there's a friendly duck sat there in the belly of beast...and he owns a vintage turntable to boot. As with all of those collaborations...

An absolutely gorgeous picture book. Good story that I wish was a little longer. Is it Caldecott worthy? You bet it is!

Wonderfully bizarre and delightfully surreal. As a very young tot, I probably would have been freaked out by the theme of the wolf gobbling everyone up, but as an adult I got the whacked-out sense of humor. Older kids who can understand it (and their parents) will get a kick out of this one.

Hilarious, clever, and a bit dark. Klassen's illustrations knock this droll tale out of the park. Excellent!

This book is fine, and the illustrations are great, but I'm not sure who the target audience is. Are children supposed to understand that a nice dinner includes good cheese, a "flagon of wine" and some beeswax candles? Do children know what wraiths are? It's a good idea and I love an origin-type...
